This Yemen citizen came to the clinic with complete paraplegia both feet with inability to walk for 3 weeks and with
Foley's catheter and loss of sense for defecation and
anaesthesia below the mid of the forelegs was sent for MRI dorsal and lumbar spine, which showed extruded disc L3-4 with complete stenosis at that level. The extrusion was central and the operation was performed as seen in the video record. From surgical view , notice that the laminectomy was wide enough to start decompressing all structures before reaching the compressed elements. This give guarantee to minimize the operative trauma over the already traumatized tissues.
